  1. "Fine grain Nb tube for SRF Cavities"

    SBC: Shear Form Inc            Topic: 65b

    Superconducting radio frequency (SRF) cavities used in charged particle linear accelerators, are currently fabricated by deep drawing and welding high RRR pure niobium sheet. The sheet typically has a non-uniform and poorly textured microstructure which leads to excessive thinning, unpredictable cavity shape, inconsistent "spring-back", and rough surfaces during cavity manufacture. These factors ...

  2. A HIGH-EFFICIENCY TECHNIQUE FOR STEAMFLOODING DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS

    SBC: Carbotek Inc            Topic: N/A

    A STEAMFLOODING/STEAM GENERATION SYSTEM IS PROPOSED FOR DEEP, HEAVY OIL RESERVOIRS. THIS CONCEPT MINIMIZES THE DOWNHOLE HEAT LOSSES, IMPROVES RELIABILITY AND REDUCES THE COST OF STEAM GENERATION. ITS FEATURES WILL MAKE STEAMING OF VERY DEEP WELLS (BELOW 7500 FEET) TECHNICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY FEASIBLE, AND WILL IMPROVE THE ECONOMICS OF SHALLOWER WELL STEAMFLOODING. THIS NOVEL CONCEPT SUPPLIES HEAT ...

  4. A novel enhanced-performance low-cost receiver and modified modulation scheme for WWVB

    SBC: XW, LLC dba Xtendwave            Topic: N/A

    The development of a greatly enhanced receiver for the WWVB signal is targeted, as well as possible modifications in the transmitted signal, which would both offer significant improvements in its effective coverage. This is to be achieved while allowing the replacement of the bulky, expensive, ferrite-based antenna, commonly used in the receiver, with a novel lower-cost antenna. Furthermore, the p ...

  5. A novel integrated deflector sensor for SPM systems

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: 07b

    Statement of the problem: Next generations of scanning probe microscopy tools will have enhanced operational capabilities, such as improved variable pressure/temperature/atmosphere systems, including reactive cells. Several technologies exist to enable components of these next-gen capabilities, but most rely on optical detection of probe deflection. In many situations, providing optical access to ...
